Growing up, I struggled in math. I remember being so nervous when I walked into a math class because I knew I would leave feeling unsure. I never want anyone else to feel that way. After graduation from the University of Central Florida, where I majored in Political Science and International Relations, I began serving with Americorps in the classroom.
During my two years of service I taught, you guessed it: MATH. I taught 9th grade Algebra 1. What I realized during this time is that I actually love math. I also learned that sometimes when something comes to us easily, we don't know how to share that knowledge to someone else in a way that is beneficial to them. Because Math did not come to me naturally growing up, I have taught myself and my students in a very specific way. My method of help is simple: I am going to teach you math in the way that makes the most sense to you! I make sure not to overwhelm my students and help understand the "why" behind an answer. I will break down problems to the basics so it is digestable and so you can process the information best. All of the students I have tutored 1:1 have gone on to pass the Algebra 1 EOC Exam, which I attribute to the learning process that takes place in our sessions.
